Abby Ehmann, aka EditrixAbby, has been a pornographer and event producer, emcee and editor, copy writer and computer artist. But through it all she's been a devout costumer and theme party enthusiast. These days she crafts crowns and tiaras and recently took a millinery class at FIT. Three months out of the year she works in the Nevada desert for Burning Man and the other nine she blogs about braving the online dating scene as a woman over 50.

Aimee is a social worker living in Toronto who references “satanic panic” and the end of the summer of love in describing her look. Somehow she translates an unwholesome interest in serial killers and horror movies, plus industrial and apocalyptic folk music, into a fun and often colourful retro kewpie pin-up look.
